I came to the Austin, Texas area in 2001. Just three full weeks before the tragedy of 9/11. Been living here ever since, with the exception of about eight months where I was in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. But New England was not the place for me to live, so I returned.

I speak several languages and closing in on learning my tenth. I sing, I write poetry and short stories, I do it all… almost.

As of the 2010-11 season, I am in my third year as a sledge (sled) hockey player for the Austin Blades. And lead the team as an assistant captain.

Travel, music, sled hockey, writing, and family &ย friends are of my greatest passions.

This insignificant blog page will be dedicated to many things. Most importantly what is going on in my tiny corner of the world. The things that are on my mind. Things about the world that piss me off. The things that make me fall in love.

As well as trying to offer some insight on some helpful subjects in which everyone in the world deals with on a daily basis, yet only giving what I feel is my own opinion without the expectation of anyone who reads this, to go about their lives as I would.

I am not a professional by any means. Nor do I claim to be. I speak only out of experiences in many of these blog posts. And others, from what I have simply learned.

Consider this your DISCLAIMER as well as your invitation.

My family and my friends: I love them all. It may seem that some posts are directly written for them. That will be a true statement. The rest is just my own rantings and thoughts and personal opinions. And every once in a while, I’ll offer up a story or two from my experiences that will make you laugh and make you cry.

Welcome. If you enjoy what you read, please subscribe!

    How could New England NOT be the place for you to live? Then again, Denver wasn’t the place for me to live, and I’m QUITE CERTAIN Texas wouldn’t be, either. So . . . there it is. Anyway, your blog is cool. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for visiting the Jenn stories! Come back again, any time!

    Dear Dambreaker!
    I love the way you say to disabled get out there & life life dont fester at home. This is my way too. But the response I get from strangers is that Im not as ill as I make out. I get scowled at. Have you encountered this and if so how do you deal with it?

    My 1st idea is to make a leaflet & hand it to them…how do you think this would go down? I have put leaflet as my website. Hope you give feedback & advice thanks

      First off, what is your illness and/or disability?

      Education is the only way to get the information to people. Especially adults… who happen to be the worst of all in their lack of understanding what disabled people have to go through in their daily lives. Everyone is different, some disabilities are severe and some are not. So you cannot just generalize in that way.

      What information do you have on your leaflet? Just the website address? And if so, what would be the hope for that?
